Throughout history, Argentina has produced a number of notable exports, from international soccer stars to fine wines. However, its most enduring contribution may be the intimate dance and passion known as Tango. Born out the immigrant communities of Buenos Aires in the 1800s, Tango drew from a mix of European and African influences and quickly grew in popularity. By the early 1900s it reached Paris and flourished, sparking a worldwide dancing craze. Today, both the dance and the culture surrounding Tango continue to be an emblem of Argentina.
Below, we have listed recommendations of where to experience the passion of Tango while in Buenos Aires. This includes Tango shows (often restaurants with dinner shows), Tango lessons, and Milongas.
